FBI investigates University of Hawaii's Stevie Wonder catastrophe

Stevie Wonder was scheduled to perform in a benefit concert at University of Hawaii on August 18th.  The only problem is Wonder didn’t know.  The University of Hawaii reported paying a $200,000 deposit from athletic department funds, to a now unknown source.  The university has suspended its athletic director, Jim Donovan, and has enlisted the help of the FBI to trace the funds. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser has the story:

University of Hawaii officials have placed athletic director Jim Donovan and Sheriff Center manager Rich Sheriff on an indefinite paid administrative leave while an investigation of the canceled Stevie Wonder concert takes place.

UH vice president Rockne Freitas, a former UH assistant athletic director in the 1980s, was named acting athletic director until the investigation is complete, UH-Manoa Chancellor Tom Apple said at a news conference this afternoon.

Apple said the school has contacted the FBI about the missing money from the concert fiasco.
